Abstract

The remote and complex transactions of the Information Society require trust and appropriately strong identification. Biometrics provides this strength in ways consistent with the new technologies. But it may be too strong and may be unduly influenced by inbuilt market failures or the dominating influence of large government security-driven implementations. This paper considers both ‘desirable’ and ‘likely’ outcomes and makes some suggestions for reconciling the two.
